The author of Fight Club takes America beyond our darkest dreams in this timely satire. People pass the word only to those they trust most: Adjustment Day is coming. They've been reading a mysterious blue-black book and memorizing its directives. They are ready for the reckoning. In this ingeniously comic work, the author's first novel in four years, Chuck Palahniuk does what he does best: skewer the absurdities in our society. Smug, geriatric politicians hatch a nasty fate for the burgeoning population of young males; working-class men dream of burying the elites; and professors propound theories that offer students only the bleakest future. When it arrives, Adjustment Day inaugurates the new, disunited states. In this mind-blowing novel, Palahniuk--an equal-opportunity offender--fearlessly makes real the logical conclusion of every separatist fantasy, alternative fact, and conspiracy theory lurking in the American psyche.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A quick, horrifying descent into madness and murder, gorgeous in its psychotic build-up and over-the-top execution.” NPR
“A send-up of the many absurdities in our society.” New York Post
“Palahniuk toys with our cultural dividing lines―race, class, sexuality―and all the fears, myths, and conspiracies that come along with them. The result is a novel that straddles both the horrific and the absurd, kind of like present-day America.” Vice
Adjustment Day feels, in many ways, like a novel made out of the times we’re living in―one in which cult of personality (and a desire to belong to specific tribes) fractures the world people are familiar with, and creates something different―and worse―in its wake.” Hollywood Reporter

The book theoretically is trying to make a point, but just gets so silly in the second half. Candle hats, being reauired to carry donuts by law under dresses... I dont know how anybody manages to finish it. Palahniuks first 3 books were his best by far
